The Lazy Fern Track Blog

The Lazy Fern will provide a loop for beginners up Koru and then down Lazy Fern. This will mean less downhill traffic on Koru and a much safer way down to the car park for people who have just started MTBing. Long-time track builder Jonathan Kennett is designing the track.

      • The last ten metres

        • In late December 2005 strange thrashing and grunting noises were heard from the bush above South Kaori Stream. Wild pigs? Blind mountain bikers? Exploring botanists? Nope, it was the first of many exploration trips to find a suitable route for the proposed easy downhill track. Two years later, and the last ten metres of the track has just been built!

        • Tuesday started of a beautiful fine day for the Global Volunteers to get out and experience some good old Kiwi track building; shame the weather crapped out on them by lunchtime. They were steadfast in there approach though and carried on through the worst of it for an hour or so in the afternoon.Thanks for the help and hope you enjoy the rest of your stay in NZ.

        • The Council contractors are moving along quickly with the bridges and retain wall at the bottom of the track. Here are some before, after and during shots so we can remember what it was like before the workmen got there.The major project is the retaining wall 100mtrs from the bottom of the track, then straight after the wall there are two bridges to go in and then further up (about halfway) they have already built two bridges.As soon as they are finished we can start bring in gravel from the bottom of the track which will speed things up.

        • What more could you want from an after work track building session, good company, good progress, good pizza and good beer. If this sounds like your kind of thing then keep a look out on the Website for more info. We will be trying to do one of these midweek work parties every week from now until December.

      • Into the 'Switchback Zone'
        • 1 Oct 2007
        • The Lazy Fern Track Blog
        • On a windy, grey old day a small but effective team finished off about 200 metres of track, so we are now well into the 'Switchback Zone'. Many thanks to Murray, Alex, Zac, Don, Ben and his kids, Rob, Steven, Ian, Grant and Alex, Malcolm, Craig, Jonathan, and the person whose name we have missed out.

      • Sunday Working Bee
        • 28 Jul 2007
        • The Lazy Fern Track Blog
        • A working bee last Sunday saw the first 90mtrs of Lazy Fern widened to its proper finished width of 1.2mtrs, this meant we could lay gravel down for the contractor to come in and start building the bridges and retaining wall needed to get around that nasty gully at the bottom of the track.
